Humpridge Track 1

Hiking the Humpridge Track – NZ

The Humpridge track is located down the very south of New Zealand’s South Island in the Fiordland National Park, 80km west of Invercargill.  It is 56km long hike and goes over the Hump Ridge, over 800 meters above sea level.  The views are amazing….or so the pictures we saw before we went alluded to!

Lees Paddock Track Tasmania

Day 1 Hobart to Lees Paddock Hut We took off from Hobart at about 10am in our hire car, a Toyota Tarago people and pack mover.  A little later than expected as we got a bit carried away shopping at Mountain Designs when all we really needed to buy was cooking gas.  Drove via Launceston, Perth, and then to Deloraine where we stopped and had lunch.  Bought supplies – 15l of water to fill up everyone’s water bladders and then we ran into Dennis from Maxwell Coaches.  We have met Dennis on previous trips to Tasmania when he has dropped to walking tracks  so it was...
